Give And Take

Allow yourself to show need,
and learn how to take what is offered,
accepting another’s generous gift
with grace and humility.

Do so with a wide-open heart,
because there is no other way
you can truly
understand how to give
with the necessary compassion
that safely allows another to show need.

It is the best path for that heart
you’re hoping to touch
to be humbly opened to accept
and graciously benefit
from your generous offering.

    I so enjoy your writings CJ. This one speaks to me as I have trouble accepting and not always trying to give. I am learning to allow people in so that they can love me. Thank you again.
